In 2016 developments in the realm of nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control included the adoption of a resolution by the United Nations General Assembly mandating negotiations in 2017 on a legally binding instrument on nuclear disarmament leading to the elimination of nuclear weapons. This followed earlier intensive discussions in the Open-ended Working Group (OEWG) on taking forward multilateral negotiations on nuclear disarmament, with a majority of participating states supporting the start of negotiations in 2017. Other developments concerned strengthening the security of nuclear materials in civilian use, continuing discord between Russia and the United States on nuclear arms control, implementation by Iran of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and a UN Security Council resolution on the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT).
